Tax

The Tax Committee is the strongest tax-focused lobbying group of inbound investors in Germany and maintains good relations across all parties with political leaders and administrative officials at the regional and federal levels. These connections form the basis for monitoring potential upcoming changes and opportunities emerging from the administration in Berlin. Through ongoing meetings, AmCham Germany's Tax Committee members maintain a continuous dialogue with numerous representatives from the German Ministry of Finance (BMF).
